Meet (& Celebrate) Your New Favorite It Bag: The Justine

Jimmy-Choo_Justine1slide
First, there was the Birkin. Then came the Alexa. Now, meet the Justine, our most recent splurge obsession which happens to be the latest namesake handbag from Jimmy Choo. The chic tote blends a '70s sportswear vibe with practical utilitarianism, and you can celebrate its arrival on shelves tonight. Head to the Chevy Chase location to nibble on hors d’oeuvres, sip on some bubbly, and maybe even treat yourself to the ultimate gift — something brand-spanking-new from Jimmy Choo's spring/summer '12 collection. Spice up your wardrobe with some playful wedges or strappy pumps in every color and pattern under the sun, or keep your sights set on the soon-to-be It Bag. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Shoot for Change scholarship at the American Ballet Theatre’s Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School, and you'll get a chance to appear in an online lookbook — if you're in need of a spring splurge, we say it’s a win-win.
